Doctor Glass pre cut Race Seat Foams are the easy and simple solution to padding up your race tail. Forget buying expensive pieces of foam then cutting to shape and gluing, our pre cut self adhesive seat foams take all the work out of making a seat for your race tail and leave you with a good looking, simple and functional seat that takes only minutes to fit.
Our pre cut seat foams are all cut to the same generic shape which comfortably fits most makes and models, however some minor shaping may be necessary for some models. Any holes for tail mount bolts must also be drilled in the seat foam. Also, applying a some heat with a heat gun or hair dryer to the race tail and the glue on the foam is required to activate the glue for proper adhesion.
Please note: The self adhesive layer on our seat foams is heat activated and may not remain sticky under excessively hot conditions. If you intend on using our seat foam on a bike that has an under tail exhaust that causes excessive heat, we advise removing the adhesive layer by simply peeling away from the foam and gluing the seat foam on using a contact adhesive such as Bostik Contact Bond that will not be effected by the heat of the exhaust.
Before fitting the foam make sure that the area that you intend to stick it to is clean and free from contaminants such as oil and grease. We do not advise fitting the seat foam to the tail until it has been painted, glue from the foam can be very hard to remove if you intend to paint at a later date. Doctor Glass Seat Foam comes with a peel off sticky side that you can use to attach it to the tail. It is important to note that the glue on the foam must be activated with a heat gun for it to adhere correctly to the tail.
Peel away the protective paper then use a heat gun to warm the surface of the tail and the glue on the seat foam. You need to get the glue quite warm but not so hot that you burn the foam or the tail. Once you have it warm enough place the seat foam in position and get someone to help you apply pressure to the foam while you tape it in position. Place some clean rags over the seat foam frist so that the tape does ot mark it. Make sure the tape you use is strong enough to hold the foam firmly to the tail and allow it to cure overnight or for at least 12 hours.
If you find that for whatever reason the foam will not stick then, such as around a tight radius near the edge, then you may need to use additional glue to hold it in place. Also, some bikes have under seat mufflers that can get very hot and melt the glue on the seat foam. If you think you will have this problem then you may need to use an extra adhesive. We recommend Bostik Contact Bond - it's a good contact adhesive that will not melt/separate under excessively hot conditions. It's available from most hardware stores.
Please note: All our seat foams are cut to the same generic shape (see pics). This shape will fit most models, however some models may require trimming to fit correctly. This can be done with a sharp knife or pair of scissors.
Available in black only.

Good product, high quality.By: Dave on 12 November 2017Great race seat foam for my Daytona - it fits perfectly. The only downside is that it did require extra adhesive because of the sharp bend radius at the edges of the seat, but that was quick and easy to do with some "quick-grip" and tape to hold in place for 24hrs while it dried.
Great product, great fit.By: Kym on 4 October 2017Great quality, adhesive backing is superb, this is the 2nd one of these I've had now as I used one on my R6 I raced last year, the foam never showed signs of wear after a full season. I've purchase one for my spare fairings on my CBR1000 for this season and I look forward to using it.
Great service and great grip for racingBy: Ray on 5 March 2017Applied to my S1000rr the night before Phillip Island. Really assisted in gripping to the bike when late braking
